Unless you live under a rock, you are probably aware that Stranger Things season 2 is airing this Halloween season.
But what exactly will become of season 2? How will Will’s life be altered after his experience from 'The Upside Down?' What’s happened to Eleven? Alongside these burning questions from fans, new characters will be revealed, such as Max who will be joining the iconic group of kids. Max is being billed as a new love interest, so it will be interesting on how this changes the dynamics within the group, combined with new subplots that will emerge as the season develops. It is presumed that 'The Upside Down' will have a much more prominent role within season 2, with a larger focus on the visual effects and a greater exploration of exactly what is in 'The Upside Down,' developing the world that haunts Will.
"The first season was a critical darling, so chances are the Duffer Brothers won't disappoint"
One important question is: Will it live up to the hype? With the rapid popularity of the first season (even my mum watched it, and it took her years to watch Breaking Bad), Stranger Things quickly became one of Netflix’s most popular original shows. It combined nostalgic 1980s tropes seen in films like The Goonies and Stand by Me with a fresh storyline that a multitude of audiences enjoyed.
However, as one of the most popular shows on Netflix, the anticipation is extremely high. The first season was a critical darling, so chances are the Duffer Brothers won’t disappoint, less Netflix subscribers bring out the fire and pitchforks. Whether it will live up to the hype or not will be up to your own personal opinion, but one thing’s for certain: everyone will be watching.
Season 2 of Stranger Things is out now so get bingeing!
